The inaugural London Mexfest launches this summer, taking place from 17 – 19 August at Rich Mix, East London as part of the Shoreditch Fringe Festival. It will present a three day fiesta of live music, contemporary, award winning films including features, documentaries, sci- fi classics, shorts and animations, alongside exhibitions, food – and wrestling! It’s time to turn up the heat and bask in Mexico’s finest cultural gems, without leaving London!

The jam-packed cultural event kicks off on Friday 17th with the world premiere Made in Mexico (Hecho en Mexico), a kaleidoscopic portrait of the music of Mexico, its people and their way of life, by UK filmmaker Duncan Bridgeman (Dir. One Giant Leap), followed by a live concert from Amandititita, the Mexican queen of Anarcumbia, an urban blend of rock, reggae, rap, and traditional Mexican cumbia. The festival closes with a screening of Daniel and Ana (Daniel y Ana), which follows the kidnapping of a brother and sister and is the first feature from acclaimed director Michel Franco (his second feature, After Lucia, won this year’s Un Certain Regard prize at Cannes).

In between there will be a rare opportunity to view sci-fi classics from Mexico hardly screened before in the UK; a series of talks with Mexican filmmakers, a Sensory Pop Up Studio by Sight of Emotion charity; the first ever UK exhibition of Lucha Libre photographs by Lourdes Grobet and the first ever projection onto the Rich Mix facade by renowned artist Tupac Martir, titled The Gentleman, The Mermaid, Mexican Cinema, Lottery!

See the Rich Mix website for the full line up from 24th July.
